For those that don't know how certificates work.

Seven night and five night certificates

1. Marriott certificates can be used for any reservation that can be booked with points. To search for reward availability simply go to marriott.com and check the box to search "using points".

Marriott hotels are divided into categories. (Cheapest being category one) below is a list of all the category 1-4 hotels  http://www.marriott.com/hotel-search/Category1.hotels.Category2.Category3.Category4.Category5/


2. A 5/7 night certificates must be used for 5/7 consecutive nights. The reservation cannot be split up.

3. In order to hold the room you need a credit card. Your card will be kept for incidentals and you won't be charged for the room.

4. Certificates can be gifted BUT the room needs to be booked under the account holders name and you will be added a secondary guest.

5. Gold or plat benefits depend heavily on the hotel. At check in you may or may not get an upgrade.

For those that bought certificates from fellow DDF users, has anyone got burnt?

Perhaps not getting a category or length of stay promised, or worse not getting anything at all/ hotel stay cancelled prior to arrival etc...

As far as getting the incorrect number of nights or category of hotel, that is very unlikely as the purchaser should receive an e-mail confirmation of the reservation.

As far as getting scammed, I can't speak in particular to this thread, but there certainly have been deals that have gone wrong elsewhere in the forum. And this is an especially bad item to be scammed with, as the last thing you want is to be left homeless at your destination with no option than to pay for a hotel at the last-minute rack rate. Therefore, it's always prudent to purchase only from seller's with a good reputation on the board, or confirm references.

Seems like - unless an actual scam - buyer can verify everything beforehand. Are there any DP for Marriott canceling these certificates?

Doesn't the seller also have risk that the buyer will run up a tab (incidentals) and leave account holder responsible?

Charged to the room. Now, hotels ask for credit card when checking in, but sometimes they forget or charge he one that's on file by mistake. I once had that my card was charged $200 but the buyer reimbursed me right away.

Always use a fake cc to hold the room if you donít know the buyer

I was sure they put like a pending charge to verify the cc, guess I was wrong.
